HOW THE POTLUCK WORKS:
That's a clue to the theme. Each potluck you're asked to bring a dish in the seasonal theme. It can be anything your imagination desires. This month the theme is SALT.
Your dish can be an appetizer, entree, salad or dessert. Don't tell us any more than that in advance. Please bring a written out list of the ingredients in your dish.
That's where I come in. At Pairings Portland Wine Shop, the focus is on organizing wine with attention to what they pair with. At these events, I'll share some of my thoughts and tactics on how to pair wine & food based on whatever food shows up at start time.
You'll learn ideas on pairing, have a taste experience of how each dish present can change your experience of a single wine, and then get to mix & match 4 wines chosen as partners to the potluck fare.
$25 per person. You'll get a half glass of bubbly on arrival, then 4 wines poured freely with the potluck.
Whosevers dish is voted favorite by the group, gets a $15 gift certificate to a 5-wine flight at Pairings Portland.
